Mission Statement

We are here to help young adults in economically isolated parts of the world to become gainfully employed by starting their own business! Talent is evenly distributed around the planet, but access to banking and capital markets is not - - - our mission is to fix that through technology and the Internet.

Description

We are a volunteer 501(c)(3) charity that sends computers and training around the world to help unemployed young adults to start their own Internet and traditional companies.

Many countries are having a difficult time creating jobs for people graduating from high school and college. This situation results in growing crime, violence, and political unrest. We feel that by leverging free enterprise and matching it with technology, we can create wealthy entrepreneurs who can earn for them selves and create jpbs for others. We focus in rural as well as inner city areas in isolated corners of the world as well as in the US wherever it is needed.

What we do is based on a program taught at the George Washington University and Harvard that were successful in creating jobs and we want to replicate that strategy around the world.
